Me thinks the inflection point is –when the employee actually has to look beyond his present job/employment to find what he loves doing.
So it is imperative for the HR fraternity find innovative tactics to keep the person engaged so as to preempt one to looking for greener pastures!
- Cannot jobs for some of the key people be designed with them as the fulcrum? Build a role around the professional?
- Can telecommuting be a solution?
- Some may even take a drop in salaries to handle for a better work-life balance?
- Since most people anyway leave “their bosses” and not so much the company, isn't it easy to realign the reporting structure ?
Isn't it ironical most often –the new incumbent comes in at a higher salary……….taking into considerations the market conditions ?
